vigano and mccarrickArchbishops Viganò and McCarrick

Yesterday a fourth document was released by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò.  The document is a beautiful open letter to Archbishop Ted McCarrick, urging him to repent.

Remnant Editor’s Note: The more the Vatican attempts to discredit Archbishop Viganò and pretend the problem is not homosexuality in the priesthood but rather clericalism, abuse of power, and whatever else the Vatican can think of, the more Archbishop Viganò emerges as a hero of practicing Catholics everywhere and history’s last man on earth who had the courage to stand and resist the Vatican's reign of spiritual and moral terror.  As The Remnant has maintained since this story broke in August 2018, we stand with Archbishop Viganò and insist that the Vatican take his most credible charges seriously without delay. A failure to do so on their part will thoroughly discredit the pontificate of Pope Francis not only in the here and now but in the pages of history itself. And if no action is taken and the coverup continues, we at The Remnant will do all in our power to make sure that happens. V is for Viganò.  MJM


Dear Archbishop McCarrick,

As has been reported as a news by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the accusations against you for crimes against minors and abuses against seminarians are going to be examined and judged very soon with an administrative procedure.

MILLIONS OF WORDS have been written and spoken for and against the revolution within the Catholic Church called Vatican Council 2. The Council was such a stark break with tradition, a hermeneutic of rupture as they say, that it demands a choice of every Catholic. Nothing was left unchanged following the Council, but most significantly the liturgy was progressively changed beyond recognition both intrinsically and in outward appearance. It is an incontestable fact that since that Council the Church worldwide has been in catastrophic decline by all measures.

IN THIS SUNDAY Sermon from South St. Paul, Father offers an apologetic on the Feast of the Epiphany and visit of the Magi. He then draws a parallel between Herod and the Sanhedrin of 2000 years ago to the Modernists of today, arguing that both groups had as their intention the destruction of the Body of Christ-- first His actual body and then His mystical body. See if you agree.

IN MAY 2014, The Remnant newspaper published my article titled “Questioning the Validity of the Canonizations.”[1] In the article, I questioned the validity of Pope Francis’ canonizations of John XXIII and John Paul II, arguing that if the canonizations did not meet the Church’s legal requirements, then they would not be licit, and hence, presumably not valid (again, per the Church’s current legislation, under which Francis the Humble chose to operate[2]). And if the canonizations were not valid under the Church’s current legislation, I argued that we don’t even get to the question of whether the canonizations were infallible, because the purported infallibility of a canonization presupposes the canonization was valid under Church law in the first place.

Editor’s Note: Given the powerful statement addressed to the world’s Bishops which appears HERE on our website, we wanted to take this opportunity to further acquaint Remnant readers with the thinking and work of Professor de Mattei. What follows is a transcript of the keynote address of this year’s Catholic Identity Conference, held just outside of Pittsburgh, PA on November 2, 3 & 4. We’re most grateful to Roberto de Mattei for granting us permission to reproduce his address here in The Remnant. By the way, all the talks of the CIC 2018 are available for one more month through On-Demand Video subscription HERE MJM

ST. GENEVIEVE WAS born around the year 420 in the small French village of Nanterre.  In the year 429, St. Germanus was sent across from Gaul to Britain to combat Pelagianism. On his way he stopped at Nanterre. He was welcomed by the citizens, and as he preached to the assembled multitude, noticed a pious young girl among his hearers.

St. Genevieve, January 3

Please note: There is no January 15th print-edition of The Remnant, as our 2019 publishing schedule resumes at the end of the month. In addition to new content, we’ll be using the next few days to reflect on some classic Remnant articles from years past, starting with this by the incomparable Michael Davies from February of 2004. We wish the many friends of The Remnant and visitors to this site a happy and holy New Year. MJM

remnants past logoDURING THE FIRST session of the Second Vatican Council, in the debate on the Liturgy Constitution, Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani asked: “Are these Fathers planning a revolution?” The Cardinal was old and partly blind. He spoke from the heart about a subject that moved him deeply:

In Part I of this essay we briefly survey of the state of the Catholic Church prior to, during, and after the Second Vatican Council and explore the use of the term “Cultural Genocide” to describe the destruction of a distinct international Catholic culture that once existed throughout the world.  Prior to the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II – 1962-1965) that culture was characterized by prayer in a universal language, a common liturgy and liturgical calendar, and common beliefs that transcended national borders. 

lamp lighter 3It is now the hour for us to rise from sleep. For now, our salvation is nearer than when we believed. The night is passed, and the day is at hand. Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light. (Romans 12:11)

PUT ANOTHER WAY, the night is always darkest before the dawn. So, for heaven’s sake, don’t give up now!

The Epistle of St. Paul to the Romans could be retitled the Epistle of St. Paul to the Traditionalists, so relevant is it to our situation. In the previous chapter of Romans, in fact, we find the Pauline inspiration for the very name of this newspaper: Even so then at this present time also, there is a remnant saved according to the election of grace.

My father chose this 51 years ago, not out of arrogance – i.e., we are the remnant – but rather as a pledge of fidelity to the remnant, whose faith and final perseverance our holy scriptures happily foretell.

This is a decidedly Catholic Institution, and I am decidedly and unapologetically Catholic.  ~Justice Thomas

Back in May, during Christendom College's Class of 2018 graduation exercises, Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas delivered a commencement address for the ages.

When I first watched it, I was left speechless, moved to tears, in fact. My wife and I are alumni of Christendom College, and for us this speech may just be our proudest Christendom moment.

But there's more to it than that. For those interested in gaining a better understanding of what we Catholics have lost over the past fifty years, this speech by a Catholic gentleman and scholar of the old school, formed in the last days of the old Church, is just the ticket.

The late scholar Mel Bradford once used the wording “remembering who we are” as a title to a book of finely-honed essays about his beloved Southland. It seems to me, as Bradford so artfully and gracefully suggested in his writings, that it is memory, both individual and collective, which is essential not just to the passed-on heritage of any culture, but to the very existence of that culture. We remember the deeds, the sayings, the handed-down lore, the usages, and the faith of our fathers and grandfathers (and mothers and grandmothers). Their lessons, their admonitions, their successes (and failures), their examples, even their everyday customs inform us and our actions, and, indeed, help shape our lives and view of life. Historically, these are in many respects the very same accoutrements that give definition and offer the earliest structure to our existence, that define us, and that also provide an inheritance which we, in turn, impart to our offspring and descendants.
